Or­gan­ise your photographs into al­bum-like Col­lec­tions in Adobe Bridge

Adobe Bridge en­ables you to cre­ate and as­sign key­words to images so that you can find them with ease us­ing fil­ters. Key­words are one of the most use­ful ways of lo­cat­ing spe­cific photographs, although Bridge has other tools that will help you to or­gan­ise your ever-grow­ing li­brary of pho­tos.

In the film era we’d place prints into photo al­bums, of­ten ar­ranged around themes such as wed­dings or hol­i­days. In th­ese dig­i­tal days we have many more images to man­age, so we can end up scrolling through hun­dreds of thumb­nails in search of a par­tic­u­lar shot.

In this walk­through we’ll demon­strate how to use the old photo al­bum model to col­lect themed images to­gether so that they are eas­ier to ac­cess, cour­tesy of Bridge’s Col­lec­tions panel. You’ll also learn how to use the Smart Col­lec­tions fea­ture to find pho­tos ac­cord­ing to spe­cific meta­data in­for­ma­tion, such as the shut­ter speed or cam­era model used to cap­ture the images.
